violarulz, here is one example from Martha Stewart Weddings

http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/good-things/sunny-delights

 

Here’s another way to insert a satchet (this one’s for a seed packet, but I think you can easily adapt it)

 

Or maybe little presentation folders like these, either placed at the ceremony seating or passed out by your ushers…

 

 

 

 

 

The plus side to these presentation folders is you can include text – I’d personally favor an edited version of the Sunscreen Song. Heh. But of course you can use any meaningful love song you like with the words “sun, “sunny” “day” “bright” “light” “sunshine” etc in the lyrics…

Viola,

Thanks for this post. We’re thinking of giving away sunscreen in our out-of-town bags, too. I guess I hadn’t thought through how much it might cost. It might be more than we can afford!

Cybele, thanks for your ideas, too.

Great idea to provide sunblock for your guests. I ended up buying 2 large bottles of “sport” sunblock (so that it had a neutral scent and non-greasy feel) and stuck them w/o a note on the table with our guestbook and kippot 🙂 Everyone thought it was a great idea that I provided it for them on our really sunny, HOT, wedding afternoon, and nobody mentioned that the set-up wasn’t cute enough.

The other thing I did that was really helpful is that I asked our venue to provide a water station so that guests could get glasses of water before the ceremony. Also was much appreciated.

With all the commentary on sunscreen being cancer-causing I am only trusting titanium dioxide so we’re going with Badger, which actually feels amazingly good and not greasy or sticky. Since it comes in bottles I was thinking of putting it in pretty labeled bags (one per row) and hanging it on the end of the row. Since everyone will be arriving early to your wedding I would simply put bottles on the tables and put out a note saying for people to help themselves. Sunscreen is self explanatory and also once one person puts some on it will get passed around very quickly. Maybe appoint a couple of friends to get things started.
